Joe Duffy’s Picks just keeps on winning. Already 2-0 in the NCAA Tournament and a cash machine long-term, we have a free pick from the NCAA Tournament odds, an upset pick at that.

NORTH DAKOTA STATE +3 Oklahoma

Yes, it makes me nervous that we are agreeing with the chic upset pick. Frankly that is not usually a good sign. But NDSU has what an upset team generally possesses: a high scoring team with a very good margin of victory, plus a clear cut star player.

The Bison have a very good +7.3 scoring margin and are led by Taylor Braun who averages 18.2 PPG, 5.5 RPG, 3.9 APG, 1.6 SPG and a 44 percent clip from the 3-point line.

NDSU is No. 1 among all 351 NCAA Division I basketball teams in field goal percentage this season at 50.9 percent. Experience can be overplayed, but not when it is backed by talent. The six Bison seniors have combined to play in 660 career games and have logged over 13,300 minutes, scoring more than 5,500 points and grabbing more than 2,300 rebounds.

The current NDSU roster has combined to play in 958 career games and make 510 starts, making the Bison one of the most experienced teams in the nation.

This is a case where both sharps and squares have the same popular upset pick. Too many respected opinions agree with us.
